5 Days And Counting ...

Gee, I only realized this morning that Christmas is actually just a couple of days away and I don't even know when my buddy is having his Christmas party. I know it's called a Christmas party and it should be on Christmas day but my good old buddy is doing it earlier. So this morning I had to drop my water face (an old Chinese saying ... LOL) and actually ask him when it was going to be held.

Well, after some nice sarcastic remarks from him about me not knowing, I found out it's going to be this Sunday. And that's when I realized that Christmas is just lurking around the corner. I still have loads of work to complete here in my office before I take my Christmas leave which I haven't even officially sent in yet. I don't think there would be any problems with my boss approving it but you just can't be too confident.

Actually I'm already not in the mood for work. I'm just waiting for this weekend to come and then I can really get down to enjoying the festivities. Don't get me wrong, I already am enjoying in but I'd enjoy it even better if I was officially on leave :D Well, at least the good part is tomorrow is a public holiday for us here and wifey and me have a full days scheduled planned tomorrow getting ready for our Christmas dinner (which incidentally falls on Christmas day, duh! LOL).

We're going to pay the deposit for some cakes we ordered, get the ingredients for moms devil curry and also order the roast pork that we're thinking of having on that night. But we really haven't made up our mind on that yet. The only thing so far that's confirmed is the cake ... hehehe ... Then there's the cleaning of the house before Christmas.

Can't really clean the place just yet cos I'm still tinkering around with the decorations and there's loads of wiring for the Christmas lights that I need to hide. It looks unsightly at the moment. I was thinking of getting one of those zipper cable organizer thingy that I read about. It's this nice and cool looking tube like thing that you can just slip all those loose cords and wires that are lying about and keep all you cables and cords neatly hidden away and it won't be so unsightly anymore.

At least it's been a quiet day so far in the office. Hopefully it stays that way till work is over. Oh yes, we're going shopping again this evening after work, looks like the shopping will never cease. I don't even want to begin counting how much wifey and me have spent so far but let's just say we'll both be cows next month cos we'll probably have to eat grass ... LOL! But thank god in part to all those assignment we've been doing, sure helps a great deal during times like these :D

There is still one more thing that I have yet to do and that is wifeys gift. I still haven't got it for her yet even though she's given her wish list to me eons ago. I'll probably get it at the very last minute, a trait inherent in all guys I guess ... LOL! I know what I want to get her but everytime we go out, we're always together and it's so hard to buy it without her noticing ... hehehe ... Yeah, yeah, I know I could get it during my work hours but I've been so busy, I don't have time to stop and shop. Oh well, still got 5 days what! :D

  7. Get thyself to the shops young man and get wifey her present before its too late. My hubby bought his own present and just handed it to me to wrap. That's quite tragic really isn't it? Still at least he knows he's getting something he really wants.
